Post your work, others will rate how much they would pay for it as a commission.Lets get a clue.
>>4011447$7-15 dollars, depending on your popularity
I'm thinking about opening comms again for the summer, so might as well. What would be a reasonable price for simple single-character drawings like these?
I charged £25 for this
>>4011469You should've charged more tbqh
>>4011466The middle and right I'd say 20. I wouldn't pay for the left
>>4011469>>4011471This. That's upwards of $100. Very good.
>>4011471>>4011477I appreciate that, anons :’) I think I’m gonna slowly work up towards that range
>>4011466I'd say $50-60 for your work
I opened a fivver with no real goal in mind other than to be obligated to paint. I'll draw whatever you want for 5 dollars.
>>4011444pls no ban
I think these threads are pointless since it's extremely subjective and people will greatly exaggerate or undercut their value estimates depending on if they personally like the subject and style or not. It would be much more useful if people posted actual commissioned work and said how much they were paid for it.
>>4011681150$+>>4011466if you draw someone else's character, 60$ per character sounds good, more if you are designing the characters
>>4011678>>4011680a 40 year old jewish woman might hang this on her wall, but for others this is not commissionable.
>>4011681If no rough lines and totally finished, 100$ or more
Some guy commissioned me for an album cover, charged him $14.88 for it (no I'm not joking) Thoughts? Was it too much? too little?
>>4011798thats very little for commercial work
>>4011801I see, well I'll excuse it away as me not being very established and not really looking for commission work, but how much should I be charging for such things?
>>4011444but on canvas I guess
>>401144450-70>>401144725-30 (if you made the pixel art background, raise price)>>4011681At least 150. Deserves more but might be hard to charge it.
>>4011806$500 atleast. I'm not joking.
>>4011826that's obscene! what could possibly justify such prices?
>>4011833The fact that is an album cover.
>>4011444You can't rate an artwork's worth just by looking at it.
>>4011486Don't listen to these crabs. Your art is worth as much as your fans/clients are willing to spend on it. Not a dime more or less.
>>40118190 for this, post finished work. Also, his left cheek is way too hollow.
>>4011844right but it's not for anyone who's gonna be making nay sort of money from this, it's a soundcloud musician, not beyonce
>>4011850okay. finished piece.
>>4011444>as a commissionI'm not a cuck and do commissions.
>>4011877That's not what I'd call a finished piece. It's what I'd call a study in a spiral sketchbook. You said you'd paint on canvas, so a finished piece would be a framed canvas. If you want to make money off traditional art, either paint cheesy stuff that people buy, like portraits from photos, or exhibit your work. But I don't think your work is good enough for exhibitions right now.
>>4011895they are good enough for portrait comissions tho
>>4011882what does that even fucking mean?>getting paid for services providedAt best it's prostitution, but cuckoldry? it's like you don't fucking think before you type, begone, retard.
>>4011681you're supposed to post your own work anon
someone paid me $20 for this but its on fiverr and i had a 2 day deadline so whatever
>>4011707A piece of bread for that poor fella
>>4012007Lol anon, might as well sell yourself into slavery.
>>4011447$30-$40 desu. Your art looks really nice. Blog?
How much would you pay? My current rate is actually $180 for a piece like this.
>>4012041That's about accurate. I'd say you should never go any lower than $120. I'm personally not a fan of the style, but it looks pretty good so I'd say $140 is more fair.
>>4012041how do you get people to pay you 180 bucks for commsis there a place where you can score this gig easily?
>>4012061Majority of my comms are from Twitter (individuals) and Artstation (small companies)
>>4011895who cares what would you call it? have sex retard
Crits welcome too. >>4011711Cute, I could definitely see people paying for this, $40 maybe?
>>4012041Completely unrelated (and selfish) question but would you mind showing the process for how you colored the hair? I could learn a lot from this
>>4012091I wouldn't pay for this at this point. It's not stylized competently enough to be tantalizing.
>>4011904If you say so, though I wouldn't comission a portrait from you. In that last painting the face is skewed, and it still looks too rough.>>4012079Sure, tell your mom to get ready.
>>4011447I like your style. What's your [insert social media site] name?
>>4011878i would say around 70-100
>>4011878Unrelated, but I absolutely love how well that chest was painted. I feel like it's very well done. Like those tits don't at all look drawn on. They track very well
>>4012007I feel like we are on the same level but you line art is a bit nicer then mine and I charged $45, shaded.
>>4012186oh, you sure know a lot about art, huh? post your work then, faggot.
>>4011681If you have her clothes the same amount of care you did for her hair I'd say $150-200
>>4011469Oh you finished it!!!!! I love it!But you supercharged yourself! It should have been tripled at least.
>>4012237Sorry phone flagging at work.*undercharged
>>4012237Thank you so much kind anon! At the moment I feel pretty tense about charging more because I’m still not very known, and I don’t want to scare people off... but, as I grow my client base I hope to start charging more :)
Most of my work is pencil but pic related is my only (completed) digital piece so far that I'm proud of.
>>4012255dont worry charging more and charging as much as your peers, it also makes your work look betterundercharging can make one look bad
>>4012281Holy shit I'd say 100-150$Good work
>>4012231Sure, whatever. I'm not even going to bother explaining that someone can know a lot about art, while not being an artist at all, and that my critique had nothing to do with my own ability. I know you're too stupid to even listen to that.
>>4012413is this a drawing of your mother?
>>4012091>>4012180>>4012225learn anatomy first before you think about charging anyone for this please, that’s not how any of this works.
>>4012413I'm the person that posted the 2 portraits you commented on originally. your pig is cute. personable. Needs some darker darks for depth in my opinion. Maybe sharper edges on those shadows, too. I like my rough portraits for the stylistic choice, and I do think they would be with more than 0 for a commission, but there's definitely for improvement. Dont be so bitter, anon.
Does anyone even commission illustrations with story into them like this? If possible once I become a pro I'd like to live doing stuff like this instead of simple pinups. Well I guess comics have their covers but I doubt I'd be contacted by any company, I wonder if random people from social media ask you to do complex stuff.
>>4012413>he fell for the pyw meme
Clean Inks Tier (for coloring)No background
>>4011819A copy of a photo -5$An actual portrait of a person -30$
how much for this?
Is fiverr a good place to get started with taking commissions?
>>4012740Poor sense of perspective and over-rendered. I'd give you 10 bucks at most.
>>4012743Pyw crab>>4012740For just the figure maybe $50-60. Factoring in the background , I'd say you could get $80-$100
>>4012743>>4012745yeah, it's a bit old. I don't color or render stuff as much as I should really but i wanted to see how much a finished piece would get.how much for line work then?1/2
>>4012753Man your style and faces have improved by a ton since then. I'd say $20 would be a perfectly reasonable price for a sketch like this, more if you're popular.
>>4011469While I agree this looks too good for $25, your presentation makes it hard to sell for higher.Make the composition a bit more interesting and you can probably turn it up. Too much breathing space, so the BG is pointless. Add some abstract elements to the framing or something.
>>4012281Looks amazing.Learn how to color, looks like a deviantart kid got a professional artwork and painted it on paint.Otherwise, just give it a solid single color like pic related.
>>4012477This is a creat piece, however amateurish the art might still be. It's definitely hard to find random commissions like this, but writers (and writer wannabes) are always looking for people to give their books and fanfics a face. You'll probably have to read some of it or ask for some detailed descriptions, your way to deal with it might vary. For a commissioner, this is a great way to pay less (it's a single piece) for more (several snippets show up), although you can't be too exigent in this case in terms of narrative, it's more like a general piece that transmits the mood.Ultimately, you can go for doing short commission pages, like doing 2 pages illustrating an action passage of the person's story, or even create something from zero, as in the dude gives you a furry shark tranny and you make 2 random pages of it surfing in a competition against its girlfriend octopus.In the end, you gotta sell your product. If you make a couple pieces like this and people like it, they might want to commission you for this particular format, even if they didn't have it in mind at first when they went out to shop for art.>>4012482Is his dick stuck to his chest?
>>4012753>>4012755What the fuck, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side... always found you pretty good and above my level on /jp/, but when I saw this >>4012740 I thought if looked absolutely amateurish.I guess if you work on your colors, you can actually get to the range this >>4012745 dude said, although for that piece in particular this price wouldn't sell.
This would require me to have a consistent anything about my art but sure how much for this. These flat sketches are low time investment.
What would it cost to have this commissioned? Worst case scenario barring stupid shit like hiring a famous/busy artist to do it
>>4012874If you want ALL THAT SHIT that I didnt read expect to be overcharged.
Tbh this thread is impossible because often people will overpay for a shitty drawing, because they don't know any better. Just because they want a certain thing drawn.
>>4012874few hundred bucks probably, that's a lot of drawing. If someone is working slave wages they'll charge ~50 bucks a page and what you posted is probably a couple pages worth of comics art. If you want inks + colors they'll most likely charge more.
How much should I charge for simple headshots? I’m considering doing full bodies but I’m in school right now and don’t have a lot of spare time.
>>4012899I always talk about stealing the Sakimibucks but this anon actually learned how to draw qt 2.5D animu girls and went to Patreoen. That's real resolve, you're an inspiration firez.
>>4012903Look if you add the extra .5 D its not an animu girl anymore. It's a Sakimichan valley weird cg lookin pinup.
>>4012740make those feet more detailed and youll make hundreds per picture
>>4012753>>4012755Like the other anons said, improve your rendering/coloring. You have a pretty good style but it doesn't show through when you paint over it.
>>4012912Oh forgot to add this. $30-ish, depends on how fast you can draw
>>4012477You're really prooud of this polished turd aren't you.
>>4012940Oh no its definitely more profitable, nobody pays shit for anime anything. I just hate the look is all.
>>4012903Thanks m8, I'm honestly not trying to appeal to a specific audience or replicate a style desu. As cheesy as it might sound I'm more interested in creating mood, state of being, etc...Btw I seriously do hope you do better than me. I'm still struggling to keep this roof over my head. >>4012904I will take my chances ...I guess.
>>4012879>few hundred bucks probablyThat's honestly lower than I was expecting. Does detail or panel count affect the price more? I wanted to make a long Hiimdaisy style comic about various Lovecraft stories, figured that sort of thing would need lots of shadows even if comedy, and cannot draw for shit. Was using that as an example because the art is pretty top and wanted the worst case scenario.
>>4012413That’ll do pig, that’ll do
I dont expect anyone to pay over a dollar for something like this.
>>4012836I’m very uninspired when it comes to composition elements that aren’t the character, so you’re right. It’s something that I’ll practice, anon, thank you.
>>4012899>>4012944Anon, you should add a link to your Pillowfort, Gumroad and Vimeo too, how are people ever gonna find you if you don't give them options?Make the font bigger as well, it's a bit hard to read.
>>4012958You're right. No one would.
>>4012740How is the bowl not spilling over when the sake is so far from where she's holding it reeeeeeeee 0/0 no dollars
>>4012937A bit. I'm better now than 2 weeks ago but that's still the biggest thing I have to show here. I learned about hard brushes now at least.
>>4011870An album cover for Beyonce would be upwards of twenty thousand dollars.
>>401207250 for >>4012041... Ur kidding right? Or are you blind? The person should charge at least €20/h or €150/d (or more).Technical skills is good, and presentation is professional. With that said I want to know blog/twitter/artstation ,etc
tfw /ic/ wont even respond to rip on you never gonna make it
>>4011469Do you have a insta?
>>4011469This is worth at least $80. Good job, anon.
>>4012759thanks, now to get popular...>>4012861hi /jp, where ever i go, the grass is the same. you and >>4012912 are right. i wish i could color better. trying to experiment to find a better method to color.
>>4014436Start with celshading on your work (hard to go wrong), do some realistic painting studies on the side, mix them when you get confident.
>>4013727I do! It’s @beholdnika>>4014323I really appreciate that, thank you anon
>>4014495How long did it take you from when you were a beginner to when started earning money from commission?
>>4014611I feel like I had a bit of a weird circumstance, anon. I took my first big commission of 3 pieces for £150 when I was 13 so I don’t think my experience will be very legitimate
>>4011685This. No idea why artists here are so quick to devalue each other's work - if you're an artist, this hurts your value too.If the appeal of your work is that it's cheap, instead of that it's desirable, you're NGMI because you're in a bidding war with yourself and the lowest common denominator.Dipshits routinely charging and bidding under $20 on work that's worth at least $100 and that's being conservative.Most people aren't going to buy something that was made for someone else. I don't think a portrait of me would get high bids from anyone else but that doesn't devalue it. People should only post work and what you received for it, so we can tell them to charge more. I only want to sell my art to people willing to pay for it. If they want it, they'll pay a fair rate, not this $20 McDonald's commission BS. If you're a client, I'm not gonna take a financial hit to spend my time and energy making something for you
>>4014436These helped me out a lot when I started painting, hope it helps!https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsDxB-CSMQ0Vu_hTag7-2UQhttps://www.ctrlpaint.com/library
>>4011444Warning, very degenerate. I do commissions already, just curious as to how I would be priced by othershttps://imgur.com/NQcvwKh
>>4014349someone pls respond
>>4014349>>4015564$0.88 cents. For the love of god work on your anatomy before anything else
idk desu lol
>>4011444Rate me pls
>>4015572The anatomy really isn't that bad if you don't count the absolutely whoppingigantihuge bazangahootadonks
>>4015581Aes but plainTo someone who prefers aes- $50To someone who prefers skill - $15Also wtf is going on with u jealous fucks itt? Almost every post is severely under valuing. For a baseline, high /beg/ tier deviantart anime level art can start at 15-30. If you offer better than that, which it seems a lot of you do, you can easily start 50-100+. People will pay high prices if you are quick turnaround. I was charging $90 a pop for clean over saturated anime art full bodies at like, 16. Charge what your worth anons
>>4015622>The anatomy really isn't that badI really hope you're joking, otherwise I'm sorry to say but you're ngmi
>>4015760Not my work
>>4015624Now how much would you pay me to polish a turd
